Amy’s Climax?

Doctor Who - Karen Gillan plays Amy PondWhat can you always rely on from the last four season finales in Doctor Who? A heart-wrenching climax that will guarantee to have you crying your eyes out. Even though there’s a new team on board, this year will prove be no different according to Karen Gillan.

The actress, who is currently playing the Doctors assistant Amy Pond, commented that the climax of the show (The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang) will result in fans dabbing the tears away with tissues. She also cryptically stated:

“I’m going to say the word ‘horses’ and that’s it.”

Gillan added what she felt were the hardest part of Doctor Who’s newest season to film:

“The second part of the finale was the most difficult because it’s a big climax for Amy and her story that’s been building throughout the series. And it just required a lot of kind of concentration and emotion.”

Going on to talk about her favourite episode to film this year, she chose (sorry for the pun!) Amy’s Choice, because of the pregnancy bump, and the scariest monster in her opinion were the Weeping Angels.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    I’m going to go out on a limb without any thought or reason and guess that the big EVIL within the Pandorica is The Nightmare Child. I have absolutely no reason to believe this is correct. I would just love an episode that explains what The Nightmare Child actually is.

    The Nightmare child sounds excellent but it’s one of those RTD-isms that will never be explained, I don’t think, much like most of the Time War.

    I’m guessing that the crack in time will all be a Bad Wolf type scenario where in the course of the final adventure, the Tardis blows up and creates the crack through time and space and the problems in the first place. Next year, I’m really hoping for NO theme for once. Just have adventures. Maybe a certain big villain shows up early in the season and then again at the end–no Daleks please—but that’s about it. I’ve grown tired of the endless linking themed series.

    Also, I’m really hoping the fate of the universe doesn’t once again rest on the companion of the year being the “most important person in the universe”.
